What is Heathers: The Musical?

"Based on the classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under."

As a musical, Heathers: The Musical is a fun and smart adaptation of a cult classic. As a project, Heathers: The Musical is a feat never before seen at Tulane: a fully-produced undergraduate musical.

Why shoud I donate?

Participation in Heathers: The Musical will allow for interdisciplinary exploration of music, theatre, and dance that supports the development of students' creativity beyond the classroom. Heathers: The Musical will also foster conversations about pressing issues in our society such as mental health, school violence, and teen suicide. In light of this, we hope to include other student organizations in our process. This production will engage with the local theatre community as well as the larger New Orleans community. An open invitation will be extended for all to attend, from those who love the cult classic film the musical is based on to those who simply enjoy the arts. The rehearsal process itself will empower students to explore their passions through artistic pursuits. Heathers: the Musical will foster leadership as students will oversee crucial positions such as Director, Stage Manager, Musical Director, Choreographer, Production Designers, and more. Our casting process will be based on principles of diversity and inclusivity as we hope to involve people from all backgrounds and experience levels.

Donations are applied to...

    Putting on a musical is a large undertaking that requires a large budget. Your generous donations will go toward...
  • Licensing and material fees: Samuel French, Inc., a publishing and licensing company for theatrical works, has given us a quote of $2,050 for licensing and materials fees to put on four performances of Heathers: The Musical This licensing gives us the right to legally produce the show and the materials include 1 Piano/Vocal Score and 18 Vocal Chorus Books.
  • Musicians: Heathers: The Musical features a band which includes a reed instrument, trumpet, percussion, guitar, violin, and bass. We plan to have a live band and need to be able to compensate the musicians for their time in rehearsals and performances.
  • Set and props:Heathers: The Musical takes us through the halls of Westerberg High School, a local 7-11, the bedrooms of multiple characters, a house party, a cemetery, and other locations. We need funds to be able to build a minimalist set and props which can represent all of these places.
  • Costumes: Heathers: The Musical is set in the 1980's, which means fun period-piece costumes!
